Quick thoughts...

LJ seems to be listed twice (ah, nevermind. That's LaMont Jordan!)

I personally prefer Steven Jackson and Ronnie Brown over Jordan.

I would probably move DD and Westbrook (assuming a healthy season) above Edge...I just don't like Arizona's O-line.

Jamal Lewis isn't even listed on there although I'd have him somewhere around 15 or so.

No Caddy? Kevin Jones?

And while it might be time to hold back on the Chicago RBs, one of them (and I'm betting on Cedric Benson) will be a top 15 back at the end of this year.

i did this off the top of my head... but all the ones i forgot or messed up seem to be below chester taylor in my mind. lamont jordan is ppr monster... how is ronnie over him?
sjax is close to lamont i believe... but does he really get that many receptions?

Well, until the only way you score is by getting PPR then it doesn't make sense to just order your draft based on it.

I think Jackson and Brown will outscore Jordan this year in PPR leagues based on yardage and TDs. I'm not high on LaMont Jordan this year regardless of what happened last year.

i wouldn't draft or rank a RB based on PPR scoring system because a running back is a multifacet position and depending on your scoring system he is bound to score the bulk of his points via rushing, TD's and receiving yards. PPR is just a little added bonus. what do you get 1 pt for every 5 receptions? that's hardly value.

Besides if you were ranking for PPR westbrook would probably be top 3-5

PPR Rankings:
1. LT
2. LJ
3. SA
4. Tiki
5. Port
6. Steven Jackson
7. Lamont Jordan
8. Westbrook
9. Edge
10. Rudi
11. Ronnie
12: DD

DD could be top 5 if he is healthy for the enitre season, but that isnt very possible.

Sorry, just had to point out that PPR stands for point-per-recpetion... as in, one point per one reception.
